TADA!! Bitx2

Well It Came In!! and it fits!!! the only issue i've had is the bits....
We bought a bridoon that looks more like a snaffle, and i can't decide if the bridoon is super huge or if india's mouth is just really tiny....which is a viable possibility, she is quite dainty and lady-like.
And the other issue was directly related to me being a No0b. I put the curb chain on over the bridoon instead of behind it, Duh!! So that got fixed right after this picture.
 
I didn't really ride her in it i just got on bareback and let her doodle around and get used to multiple bits. She did fine, and as i'm a pretty proficient bareback rider we even did a little dinky western pleasure canter and trot.
 
Now....to oil the shit out of it....

Legit pony. Officially. I hope you didn't pay a lot of money for the leather to not be supple enough that it still needs an initiating oiling....

Oooh, doesn't she just look all fancy-schmancy!

RE the bradoon bit - I had to find one with super-small rings to fit my guy, otherwise it just looked ridiculous. I think they make them all for these ginormous 17+hh horses and those of us who have horses with more petite faces have a hard time finding stuff to fit. Good luck!

Jenj: i think everything is made for 17hh horses these days XD
